Call to Caucus / Rules

Virginia voters registered in the 48th House of Delegates District prior to June 30, will be allowed to vote. The caucus will be unassembled, meaning a “firehouse primary” style of voting (show up, vote, leave). Voting will be conducted using preference voting (ranked order balloting) as in prior Arlington Democratic caucuses this year.
